Saint Helen's most talented students. It features all new songs including: Twelve Days Prior to Christmas, Santa Ain't Comin' To Our House, We Three Kings of Orient Are Us, and It's Better to Give Than To Receive. This show is filled with "Nunsense" humor, some of your favorite carols, a "Secret Santa," and an uproarious take on Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker BalletNuncrackers will make you laugh and maybe tug at your heartstrings. It's the perfect way to insure your holiday season is merry and bright.

 

CASTING FOR:

Sister Mary Hubert – is the Mistress of Novices. She is second in command to Reverend Mother. She wanted to be a nun all her life and at times finds it difficult to deal with problems she firmly believes are created by Reverend Mother’s ineptness. She is very practical. She and Reverend Mother have a healthy and humorous rivalry.

Sister Robert Anne — also voice of the puppet nun, Sister Mary Annette – is a streetwise nun from Brooklyn, New York. She is one tough cookie but has a heart and soul of gold. The students love her because she “speaks their language.” She feels she has real theatrical potential and is constantly frustrated by Reverend Mother’s refusal to let her “star” in the show

Father Virgil Manly Trott is Sister Mary Leo’s “real-life” brother. He is a Franciscan Father of Fort Wayne and grew up in the Mississippi Delta where he and his sister were part of the Trott Family Singers. He now has his own radio show, and the sisters invited him to participate in the Christmas program because they knew he could give them pointers on presenting a good show.

Mt. Saint Helen's School Children's Chorus:  These students under the instruction of the Little Sisters of Hoboken bring an innocence to the holiday stories told by our favorite sisters.  Auditioning children should be age 8-15

Camera Operator:  This is a non-speaking role.  This role will require a great deal of on-the-spot improvisation and agility.

The roles of Reverend Mother and Sister Amnesia are not available
